Review of Wild Dog and Fox Programs

In 2003 The Vertebrate Pests Committee, at the request of the Natural Resource Management Ministerial Council, undertook a national review of Wild Dog and Fox Control Programs.

The Terms of Reference for this review are:
1. Review current wild dog and fox control programs implemented in each jurisdiction in Australia, outlining current control programs, research and development programs, control techniques used and variations of these across land tenures.
2. Review current inter-jurisdictional collaboration on policy, planning, research and development and program implementation for wild dog and fox control.
3. Identify potential areas for improvement in cross-jurisdictional collaboration in the above areas of wild dog and fox control programs.
4. Recommend to NRMMC, via LWBC, preferred options for implementation and resourcing of areas identified for improvement.

Industry and community groups had extensive input to the development of this report.
